The Corker House is located in the back lanes of Middle Park. It was built on the rear of an existing block of land which contained a single-fronted nineteenth-century cottage. Its immediate surroundings were black fences, old stable buildings, red brick garages, roller doors and blue stone cobbles. Red brick, concreted and steel framed windows are the simple materials of the north facing house which sits behind a high brick wall pierced with tiny square openings. A high ceilinged living room with a folded concrete roof divides the outdoor space into two private sun-trapping courtyards.
